Please join us Thursday, Feb. 23 at 6:45 (zoom opens at 6:30) for a timely discussion on Police Reform in Oakland and Berkeley.


Our discussion of Oakland will start with Darwin BondGraham, co-author of the acclaimed new book The Riders Come Out at Night, an explosive history of the Oakland Police Department. An award-winning investigative journalist, he serves as News Editor of The Oaklandside. Our second Oakland speaker, Millie Cleveland, directed the Violence Prevention Project for West Oakland and is active with the Coalition for Police Accountability.
For Berkeley, we will hear from City Councilmember Kate Harrison, author of Measure II, which created the independent Police Accountability Board (PAB), and of restrictions on Berkeley’s use of force, militarized equipment, and automatic license plate readers. Then John “Chip” Moore, current Chair of the PAB, will update us on the Board’s efforts and challenges.

Jim Chanin, a nationally prominent attorney in civil rights and police accountability, has been deeply involved in these issues in both Oakland and Berkeley for many years. He will conclude the panel with “A Tale of Two Cities.”

Following the panel and discussion, the Club’s 2023 officer elections will take place live over zoom. The following positions will be voted on.
